Golder Associates’ Dr. Peter Popkin was front and centre at a City of Toronto news conference held September 8, announcing the discovery of archaeological remains at the St. Lawrence Market downtown. Dr. Popkin explained they had found remains of market buildings dating back to 1831, 1851 and 1904, which included foundation piers, a large flagstone sewer and other artifacts. The $91-million North St. Lawrence Market redevelopment will be delayed to ensure any important historical remains are preserved.
